's personal vehicle post presidency. think of it as sort of a precursor to that similar to president clinton's clinton global initiative. well, if it's friday, we'll get david gregory in here. can the white house leverage the what house apparatus to work in the second term? mr. gregory? good to see you. let's start with what they're doing here, what they promised to do in the first term. their big organization would be used. they still claim it was successful. they say you think health care was hard without ofa it would have been even harder, things like that. but to see what they're going to do and the first test is going to be guns. >> what is striking about the gun proposals is the president has basically thrown a long bomb here to use a football metaphor. saying look. these are things i believe in. now look. if the public rises up we'll get it done. it is based on public opinion. i think the problem with that is that he understands the political reality of an assault weapons ban and high capacity magazine ban being so difficult in the house and one of the things they have to do is win th
. this comes as former president bill clinton at a private meeting was warning fellow democrats about dismissing progun arguments. he said that could be very counter productive for democrats. interesting mix here. byron york joins me now. chief political correspondent for the washington examiner. good to have you with us. >> good morning, mar that are. >> an interesting comparison. if you less ton what the president has been -- if you you listen to what the president has been saying lately he has been really putting gun owners on the defense eastbound. when you look at the numbers the nra in the country is more popular than the president right now. >> sure is. i think it is important to remember in these fights between the two that people have been members of the nra and supporters of the nra for longer than barack obama has been a politician, much less the president. and i should say also that in this fox news poll people had a more favorable impression of the nra not only than president obama but also the democratic or republican parties. there s a pretty deep reservoir of goodwill
of state hillary clinton will face questions on capitol hill wednesday for the first time about what happened in benghazi on september 11. >> there was no question at any point in the statements that she considered it her responsibility to learn the lessons from this and to take the department forward in implementing whatever lessons were learned. >> yet, at least two eyewitnesses who participated in the rescue that night in benghazi were not offered up by their senior leaders at the c.i.a. and the state department to speak to mullen and pickerring. in marked contrast to how the civilian survivors of the algeria attack have been made available to the press, the administration has not made any of the benghazi survivors available to congressable members who want to know what happened. >> state department employees who were injured in the firefight should be interviewed and talked to by members of congress. so far that hasn't happened. >> there are many unanswered questions from benghazi. for one, fox news learned from the senior u.s. defense officials that the fast team of marines out
there was this young arkansas democratic governor bill clinton unseating an incumbent republican president. the uncomfortable part of that memory for democrats is that even though bill clinton did beat president bush in 1992 he did so with only 43% of the vote. bill clinton got 43% of the vote that year. president bush got 37% of the vote. and even though it is always a bad idea to do math on television, this one isn't that hard. if you add up 43 and 37 you do not get anywhere near 100% of the vote. what happened to the rest of the vote? the wacky thing about the 1992 election in terms of thinking about american binary red versus blue party politics is that another guy who ran that year, a third person, got almost 20% of the vote. it was ross perot, right? giant sucking sound. ross perot got a very large proportion of the vote for a third-party candidate. nearly 20%. and who knows how the votes would have been divided between bill clinton and george h.w. bush had ross perot not been in there that year. but one thing that's often forgotten about the 1992 race was that ross perot was not the
on election day is such that they don't need to the way that bill clinton did losing conservative voters, particularly swing voters anymore, because they have a new coalition and that's driving the president to say, look, we can satisfy these long-term pentup liberal demands and you see that as true? >> i would argue that that analysis is probably the best way of looking at this president and understanding what he's doing. democratic presidents in the past, you've looked at bill clinton, they understood and they believed there was a real benefit to being somewhat in the middle, centrist and working with republicans and getting things done and getting that vast bipartisan approval quotient. and this president hasn't done that, but he believes he has what it takes to have the democrats in office with a liberal majority and that brings up a huge question how sincere he is over the next two years about some of the item agenda, agenda items he's put forward like immigration, or whether this is about taking issues making republicans look like they're disunited and unable to govern and route th
it to bill clinton for eight years. bill clinton was smart enough crafty enough to find a way to rise above and beat us at every turn. he did it by continuing to reach out. i always say when i was a lawyer, i had pictures after congress, all these pictures of bill clinton with much appreciation. it would drive my law partners crazy. appreciation for what? you impeached him. i said yeah, those were the days. you got to reach out. >> here's a question i don't think any of us can answer. only the president can answer. can he utilize the power, the threat of power of the presidency the way lyndon johnson did with regard to resolutions during the course of the vietnam war? one senator voting against him, not being with him. frank church had voted against the vietnam war. lyndon johnson says the next time you want to damnen your district call frank church. can barack obama utilize the inherent power of that office? >> if he has personal relationships -- lyndon johnson had remarkable relationships. they knew when lyndon called lyndon meant business. the president needs to

down for a few days. s we've been down that road before. clinton and gingrich can certainly attest to that. i think that the lesson is, if you remember back to the clinton and gingrich showdown in 1995 and early 1996, the republican party emerged from that changed a little bit. the republican party then in the first part of 1995 was just like the republican party. total hell bent on confrontation with president clinton. when they lost "lost" the shutdown of 1995 and 1996 they emerged -- yes, they still impeached bill clinton, but they were a slightly more reasonable party in terms of reaching compromises on other issues with clinton from that point forward. >> let me ask you. if they're just threatening a downgrade, again, what is your view on how bad that is for the u.s. economy? ? i mean, there are lots of perilous things that will kick into place. >> in the short-term, sadly, perversely not so bad. >> right. >> i don't think it's going to have a huge impact on -- short-term. the question is it's a long-term thing, and that's two, three, four, five, ten years out, and that's what
